Pic3Tuesday the 8th November, was a Jubilant evening – the official opening of the new school build for patients on Rose Ward, coinciding with the Royal Brompton Hospital winning a review into the heart unit closure.
Sir Robert Finch on behalf of the Royal Brompton Charity officially declared the school open, he spoke of the importance of education continuing whilst children and young people are in hospital - this was echoed by Paula Cogan, a long term patient who had spent more than 25% of her education at the hospital school. Despite her many admissions to hospital, Paula achieved highly in her exams and now at University she is a beacon to other young people who face the challenge of having a medical condition on how to develop resilience and remain motivated. Claude Lattin another former student, now studying Japanese at University, spoke of the wider impact of the hospital school, for example the support of careers counselling and relevant work experience – Many thanks to both of them for being Ambassadors for hospital education.

See below some pictures of the evening and one of our students speech:
